    Gunsmithing chamber question?

    I have 5 or 6 reloads on some of it and no issues. I guess I will just have to keep it separate, which does suck because I have a ton fired from factory rifle and not nearly enough for the other two. I thought about tearing one down and giving it another .001 or .002 to see if that would work...

    So I had the day off again... oilfield, feast or famine I guess. Anyhow I have a contender with a couple barrels, one of them was a 44mag hotshot barrel with the screw in choke. So as a 44 its ok minute of paper plate it has killed deer, but never really thrilled me. So I've been wanting a...

    Gunsmithing Machining...can it be self-taught?

    I waited on a rifle once for over a year, told myself it couldn't be rocket science, convinced the wife i'd be saving money in the long run (yeah right). Bought a grizzly lathe and a mini mill, never used either ever, bought a little metal to practice on, now 15-20 rifles , a dozen or so muzzle...

    Hydro Dipping?

    we've done it a few times its not really to hard but there is a learning curve, depending on the pattern and how picky you are because there will always be a seam somewhere but for the most part its not rocket science.

    Gunsmithing $50 Hillbilly Gun Oven

    Re: $50 Hillbilly Gun Oven I made one almost exactly like this only I use a heat gun instead of the hot plate Just put heat gun in thru hole in the bottom small exhaust hole at the top. It works really well. I never thought about a hot plate I guess I assumed the circulation would help.
